Holiday shoppers need to practice safety tips to prevent theft & burglary

The busiest retail shopping weekend of the year begins today at some locations, while others wait for Black Friday, then its Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday on the Internet for those that like to avoid the masses.


If you will be out and about shopping this weekend, the Texas Auto Burglary and Theft Prevention Authority, a division of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles, reminds drivers they should practice three basic safety tips to help prevent theft and burglary during the holidays and throughout the year: remove belongings from view, secure vehicles, and never leave keys inside. 


In addition to practicing these prevention methodologies, drivers should park in areas that are well-lit, near surveillance cameras (if available), and near heavy foot and vehicle traffic.


The more thieves feel threatened by detection, the less likely they are to focus on targets in such areas.
